Camping is available on many different surfaces such as gravel and dirt, grass, pavement as well as there are plenty of locations to choose from at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Are you a fan traveling around the globe in preparation for the most prestigious racing show at Indy 500? If that’s you, then, here you’ll get to know the best tips that will make your stay more enjoyable and a memorable one.
Tips for Indy 500 camping:
Let’s look at the best three tips…
1.Always carry a few must-haves
With an exciting event such as the Indy 500, you can find yourself forgetting the necessities that can include the parking passes as well as the tickets.
So, if you plan to travel to the Indy 500, here is a checklist of a few must-haves.
- Parking passes
- Cell phone and charger
- Sunscreen and hat
- Enough cash
These are some of the things to always check before planning on Indy 500 camping. Also, be aware that no pets are allowed at the grandstands.
2. Bring enough food
There is food available during the Indy 500 races, but if you’re so selective with what you eat, then you can bring your own food as the Speedways allows fans to carry their food.
But, once you enter the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the race, you can’t leave or re-enter.
That’s why it’s always good to plan all the things ahead concerning your stomach. If you’re into tailgating, then you can find it friendly to carry your grill and some lawn chairs for you and your family for cooking and eating during rest periods.
We would recommend packing your RV with eat-on-the-go snacks such as hamburgers and hotdogs.
3. Camping size and spot
Lastly, if you want to save some bucks, then forget the idea of staying at a luxury hotel and embrace the spirit of Indy 500 camping and create some unforgettable memories with your family.
Some of the spaces to camp include:
- Raceview Family Campground
- Sixty-acre facility with electric connection and showers.
Be the first one to select the right spot for camping, by getting your tickets early before they sell out. You can do so by checking the official website to see the available locations and reserve your spot before they go out fast.
